Soon after Dawn Madison returned to Hollywood looking for her missing father, she found herself working with his friends at Limpet and Associates. Their boss, Jonah Limpet, or ‘The Voice’ as Dawn refers to him, has plans for Frank’s daughter and having her learn what she can about the underworld is at the top of the list.

There’s been a murder, and the killer appears to have been a vampire. After making an arrest, another murder occurs and raises suspicions, leaving the team to wonder whether they’ve arrested the actual killer or if this new victim has been killed by a copycat.

With Kiko nursing an injured back and the near loss of his psychic abilities, Dawn and Breisi continue the search for Frank, collect any information they can about the underworld, and destroy every vampire they encounter along the way. Something is brewing in the underworld, something that has Jonah worked up and pushing harder than ever for answers and seducing her to get them. Then there’s Matt Lonigan, a man Dawn longs to trust. She’s just not sure who she can believe in, and right now the wrong choice could cost Dawn her life.

Midnight Reign is the second book in the Vampire Babylon trilogy. Dawn’s search for her father continues as she battles every obstacle in her way. Ms. Green fine tunes her trilogy with the answers to many questions, and shares detailed history of the underground through a series of well-placed flashbacks. This is a fast-moving urban fantasy filled with murder, mystery, and a large dose of the supernatural. The vivid characterization and danger at every turn will keep readers engaged throughout the story, and leave them anxiously awaiting the next installment.

This is another one I've been thinking about trying. Do you know how many books are planned to be in the series?

Kimberly Swan said...

I was so happy when this came to me for review. :) I would recommend reading them in order because it is an ongoing search for Dawn's father, and information about the underworld.

SCooper - the intro with it says that it's a trilogy, but I'm hoping she decides to continue on. :)
